I investigate cognitive and neural factors associated with how we form and retain autobiographical memories and how this may differ across individuals. I also examine how autobiographical memory influences non-mnemonic functions, with a primary focus on future imagination and decision making. My research approach is multi-faceted; I explore these topics in healthy individuals as well as in neuropsychological (e.g., amnesia) and psychiatric populations (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder). I also use neuroimaging methods, including MRI and fMRI.
